If I Could Fly

If I Could Fly short poem

Photo by monkeyatlarge


If I could fly, I would fly so high.
Way above the ominous sky.
Higher than the eagle’s cry.
Higher, higher, oh why can’t I!
Up to space? I sure would try.
Even if it meant I’d die.
As I let out my last sigh.
A tear would slide out of my eye.
But without air I could not cry.
And I would know the end was nigh.
My life in flashes speeding by.
My eternal lullaby.

Fly – Flight – An Ode To Birds

Fly   Flight   An Ode To Birds long poem

Birds levitate and are airborne, Flapping wings soaring to the highest stratosphere, Flying into the blue yonder, Over snowcapped mountains, abutting the clouds, Flying, gliding, landing, so sublime Perching themselves in the tiny gap between other birds on a cable
